Abstract

Deaf people, who mainly use a signed language for communication, encounter multiple information accessibility challenges in their daily lives. Vital information, like health, has been limitedly accessible to Deaf people across the globe, including those in the Western Cape, South Africa—the studied context of this thesis. The lack of access to accurate health information causes some Deaf people to neglect medicine and treatment adherence.
